    Voter Registration - Volunteers Needed

    Many have asked me, besides actively joining politics, what they can do to help us help the country. One of the simplest and least political of activities which can be carried out is to help conduct voter registration exercises.

    Currently, my DAP Damansara branch and service centre carries out voter registration exercises every Monday night from about 7.30pm at the SS2 pasar malam, just outside Medan Selera, same row as McDonalds. We register anything between 40-100 new voters each evening.

    But even in Petaling Jaya itself, there are quite a few more pasar malams which we can hold weekly sessions, such as the key ones in Taman Megah (Sun), Taman Paramount (Sun), SS2 Chow Yang (Thu). But we don't have enough volunteers to carry out these sessions regularly at these venues. And we've not even included pasar pagi in SS2, Taman Megah and Section 17.

    With more volunteers, we could also hold one-off voter registration sessions at condominiums, shopping centres and other heavily populated venues. One exercise held at a local church recently spanning a few days yielded more than 200 new voters.

    So we call upon all who are keen and committed to help to contact us. You can email jshin48 (at) gmail (dot) com with the following details:

    Name:
    Contact No:
    Where you stay:
    Frequency: Adhoc only | weekly | fortnightly | Monthly (pls specify which day)
    Other indicators that will help us co-ordinate volunteers

    For those who wants to help in other constituencies, feel free to email in as well, and we'll try to direct you to the right persons in charge in those areas.

    For those who are not aware, political parties have approved assistant registrars by the Election Commission to conduct these voter registration exercises. You can of course, visit your nearest post office as well to get yourself registered. ;-)

    Re: Voter Registration

    This problem can easily be solved once we have automatic voter registration, meaning, if a citizen reaches 21 years of age, that person is automatically registered as a voter.

    There will be a youth event organised Youth For Change which is supported by the State Government at One Utama this Saturday. It's an all-day voter registration drive with live music, film screenings and more. So, if you know anyone who has yet to register to vote, there is no better time than this Saturday. If not, you can come and enjoy the music!

    Thanks!

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    A frequently cited statistic from 2006 stated that 70% of the 4.7 million Malaysians yet to register as voters are aged between 21 and 35 years. At the same time, the young people of the Klang Valley are becoming increasingly concerned about social and political issues, from the environment to education, human rights to personal safety.

    Registering to vote is an important step to entering adulthood and taking responsibility for the society in which we live in. Unfortunately, voter registration is usually a dull and boring affair, making it easier for the young to brush their duty aside.

    The Youth For Change Carnival aims to change that. With performances by top Malaysian independent musicians such as Bittersweet, Couple, Seven Collar T-Shirt, Liyana Fizi, Robot Asmara, Reza Salleh, Ika and many more, the Youth For Change Carnival aims to draw in thousands of youths from around the Klang Valley. At the carnival, those who have yet to register to vote will be able to do so easily at attractively designed booths, while standing a chance to win numerous prizes as well as freebies.

    In addition to live music, the Youth For Change Carnival will also feature a mini flea market showcasing creative fashion and art by young designers. As part of the day's festivities, short films made by young Malaysian filmmakers will be screened, including the popular 15Malaysia shorts that have been a hit on the Internet. Popular young actors, musicians, artists and bloggers will also be meeting their fans at the carnival.

    Above all, the aim of the Youth For Change Carnival is to bring the young people of the Klang Valley together to enjoy fun, healthy and creative day that will also leave them empowered. The purpose might be to attract the young to register to vote, but we plan to do it with music, movies and fashion, not politics.

    Re: Voter Registration

    FED-UP OF ALL THE CORRUPTIONS THAT ARE GOING ON?

    FEELING SIDELINED BY THE VERY GOVERNMENT THAT SUPPOSED TO HELP YOU?

    DO YOU WANT TO SAY SOMETHING WITHOUT BEING AFRAID TO BE ARRESTED?


    HERE'S YOUR CHANCE !

    A NEW HOPE FOR MALAYSIA.......

    "Voter Get Voters" Campaign


    Are *YOU* One of The 4.39 Million Unregistered "King Makers"?


    The Election Commission reported that 15.47 million of Malaysians are above 21 years of age and therefore eligible to vote in federal and state elections.

    However, only 11.08 million (72%) have taken the trouble to register as voters.

    This means that 4.39 million (28%) eligible electors have opted to forfeit their right to vote in the event a general election is held.

    NOT CERTAIN WHETHER YOU ARE A REGISTERED VOTER?

    Go to the Election Commission of Malaysia Electoral Roll Checking website and punch in your IC No: for a quick check ...
